Construction company Sisk have announced that they will invest around €2.8 million on more than 100 electric vehicles for its company.

The company said it was “part of a company-wide drive to enhance energy efficiency”. The move is expected to yield savings of €450,000 annually.

The Government’s electric car incentives mean that Sisk will be able to deduct the full cost of the cars from its profits in the year of purchase.

The company has also said it will invest some €80,000 in installing fast-charging points at its offices and construction sites around the State.
